  1. Gaining Access to the Outdoors: A Wheel Camber Adjustment Mechanism for Use in Nonmotorized, All-Terrain Vehicles.

    SBC: Mobility Engineering            Topic: N/A

    Wheelchair users are severely restricted from participation in outdoor activities due to the inability to traverse rough and sloped terrain. A novel wheel camber adjustment mechanism for hand powered, all-terrain, wheeled vehicles will be designed and evaluated. This system addresses the central technical issue in achieving high stability in such vehicles. The wheel camber adjustment system all ...

  2. Non-Contact Final Polish/Passivation Technology for the Production of Epi-Ready GaSb Wafers


    "Special technology and circuit architecture is under investigation for implementation of low power electronics (LPE) that operate at low supply voltages without sacrificing performance. GaSb substrates have advantages that make it attractive forapplications that require low power and high frequency. A significant aspect inhibiting commercial application of GaSb wafers is the inconsistency of the ...

  3. Design of Superelastic Nitinol Enhanced Puncture Resistant Armor

    SBC: Garman Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Proposed is an investigation into the use of flexible, extremely strong and tough, superelastic Nitinol shape memory alloy as a means of dramatically improving puncture resistance for personnel body armor. The Nitinol material is proposed as a surface material or coating for reinforcement or organic fiber fabrics and/or composites or aramid and UHMW polyethylene used in the current body armor sys ...

  4. Low Cost, Low Bandgap Thermophotovoltaic Cells

    SBC: JX CRYSTALS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Using new low bandgap GaSb photovoltaic cells, JX Crystals has recently demonstrated functional thermophotovoltaic prototype generators. While it is generally believed that the cost of materials makes non-silicon photovoltaic cells prohibitively expensive unless one can develop thin film cells, this thesis is wrong for thermophotovoltaic cells. Specifically for the GaSb cell, the Ga and Sb mater ...

  5. Integrated Remote Patient Care System

    SBC: Microdexterity Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MicroDexterity Systems was founded by Steve Charles, MD to develop systems for dexterity enhancement for microsurgery; a concept he originated in the mid 80's. Dexterity enhancement is a subset of tele-operation. The MDS mission statement was broadened in 1994 to address the problem of non-ferromagnetic tele-operation for intra-operative magnetic resonance imaging frequently called image guided ...

  6. Design Tools for Integrated Asynchronous Electronic Circuits

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Asynchronous circuit design has the potential to offer orders of magnitude improvement in speed, power dissipation and EMI over synchronous circuit design. It is especially appealing to military electronics due to its extremely low EMI performance and itssuitability as an enabling technology for heterogeneous system integration with high reliability and affordability. However, its real silicon su ...

  7. CAD Tools for 3-Dimensional VLSI Circuits

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Three dimensional integration offers the potential of orders of magnitudeimprovement by reducing interconnect lengths and delays. With recent breakthroughsin manufacturing technology, 3-D circuits are emerging as a commercially viablesolution to enable continued technology development conforming to Moore's Law.However, the exploration of 3-D circuits will be hampered by a lack of designtools for ...

  8. Non-Invasive Battery State-of-Charge Sensor

    SBC: Power Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The operational readiness of critical equipment often depends on the integrity of the battery subsystem. A small magnitude magnetic field, generated by a coil, can be used to monitor the state-of-charge and possibley long-term state-of-health of batteries. The proposed work will determine the feasibility of using a non-invasive sensor-external to a battery - and not connected to it's terminals. ...

  9. On-board, Prognostic Micro-Structural Reliability Tool for Mechanical Systems

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Technology for extending the life of fielded systems offers the potential for signification saving in total ownershipcosts. On-board monitoring and analysis offers the potential to instill increased confidence in prediction of fatigue or remaining usefullife on an individual system basis. This, in turn, offers the potential to reduce premature part retirement. The Phase I project demonstrated t ...
